According to the Tor Project:

Can I use a VPN with Tor? Generally speaking, we don't recommend using a VPN with Tor unless you're an advanced user who knows how to configure both in a way that doesn't compromise your privacy.

To answer your question, maybe? It probably hasn't been tried as it would not be a best practice unless you already know how to use both.

You can find more detailed information about Tor + VPN at the Tor wiki.

  • I ask it because weirdly when I use spiders (indexation robots) on a website with Tor, so another IP than mine, that's my whole local network who can be blocked. For instance my smartphone could not access it correctly until I use the 4G and not the wifi. I guess there is a leak in my identity.
